Lisa Roberts Releases Children's Book

AUSTIN, Texas, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ Although they probably studied them in school, most Americans don't remember that much about Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the men President Thomas Jefferson dispatched in 1804 to explore the Northwest lands the U.S. acquired through the Louisiana Purchase. In addition, few Americans can recall the actual role Sacagawea, the only female member of the expedition, played in this famous 16-month trek that led the group from St. Louis, Missouri, west to the Pacific Ocean.

Just in time for Lewis and Clark Heritage Days, held May 15 and May 16 in Saint Charles, Missouri, children's book author Lisa Roberts will share fascinating facts most people don't know about the expedition. Roberts' new book, the second in a series, is Back to Basics with Aydan and Addy: Discover Your Inner Pioneer and Adventurer with Lewis & Clark and Sacagawea Too!

For example, she will reveal:

  • Teenaged Sacagawea did not serve as the expedition's guide. What was her true role?
  • Four traits that Sacagawea exhibited that made her adventurous and courageous and how parents can nurture those traits in today's children.
  • The fate Lewis's dog Seaman was spared that other dogs on the expedition suffered.
  • The ironic thing that happened to many of the artifacts sent home from the mission and which artifacts survive today.
  • Discoveries the explorers made.
  • The surprising way Sacagawea is honored in the U.S. today in addition to the Sacagawea silver dollar.

Lisa Roberts is the author of the new Back to Basics with Aydan and Addyseries. Aydan and Addy are two children who travel across the country on Leviathan 63, President Abraham Lincoln's steam locomotive, where they engage with the spirit of the late president and meet many historic figures including Lewis and Clark and Sacagawea. Roberts is a former preschool teacher, child advocate, YMCA child development director, private school director and assistant director for the University of Texas Child Development Center.
